Yoga teachers are trained to provide pose modifications and instruction for a range of physical capabilities to help everyone feel welcome and participate at their fullest capacity. However, they are not licensed medical practitioners and cannot give medical advice or care.
As with any other exercise program, you should speak with your physician regarding your participation in a yoga-based program. We encourage you to always be listening to your body. If any pose is uncomfortable for you or you feel pain at any time, stop what you are doing and relax until you feel ready to resume practice. Discuss any concerns with your teacher.
